We celebrate this day with great enthusiasm every year to pay tribute to the Father of the Nation as well as remember his courageous deeds on the way of independence struggle for the country from British rule. We celebrate Gandhi Jayanti as one of the great national holidays all over the India.
The full name of the Mahatma Gandhi is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, also known as Bapu or Father of the Nation.The birthday of Bapu gets celebrated all over country as Gandhi Jayanti however all over the world as an event, International Day of Non-Violence.
Bapu took birth in a very small town of the country however his deeds were so great that no one could stop to get spread all over the world. He was the person who always believed in getting freedom from the British rule very peacefully through non-violence. He was the pioneer of non-violence, a only effective way to achieve freedom from British rule according to him. Bapu was a great freedom fighter who spent his whole life in struggling for freedom of India
After realizing a real pain of Indians, he started participating in various freedom movements together with the Gopal Krishna Gokhale. The campaigns what he run for India’s freedom were non co-operation movement, civil disobedience movement and quit India movement. He went to prison many times however never lose his patience of fighting peacefully. The whole life of Bapu has been set as an ideal example (in front of us and future generations) of patriotism, sacrifice, non-violence, simplicity, and firmness.
It teaches us to be active with open eye every time in order to maintain the honor of our motherland. I would like to share with you some sayings by the Mahatma Gandhi:
“My life is my message.” and “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Some of the famous quotes by him -
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean does not become dirty.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.
Lets join hands together on this day to celebrate "Gandhi Jayanti" by doing something good, learn form his sacrifice by taking all the positive thoughts, build our strong determination to achieve something in our life and also participate in "Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan" started by our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji.
